A painting of Kataragama deviyo

Kataragama deviyo (also called: Skanda Kumara, Sinhala: ‍කතරගම දෙවියෝ) is a guardian deity of Sri Lanka. Sinhalese Buddhists believe him also as a protector of the Buddhasasana in the country. A major temple dedicated to 'God Kataragama', which is known as Ruhunu Maha Kataragama devalaya is situated in the town of Kataragama in Southeastern Sri Lanka. He is identified with Skanda of the Hindu tradition, who is called as Murugan or Kartikeya in the Tamil language. There is also an identical guardian deity of Buddhism, known as Skanda in the Mahayana Buddhism. Theosophists identify Kataragama deviyo as Sanat Kumara, the king or regent of the world and the lord of humanity.[1]
